Will we see Lynda Carter, 1970s Wonder Woman, in the new Wonder Woman movie?

With Gal Gadot set to make her big screen stand alone debut (she will feature heavily in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice first) next summer, some of us have been wondering if she’s the only Wonder Woman we’ll see in the movie.

Original 1970s Wonder Woman TV actress Lynda Carter has been doing a lot of talking about the move and how she hopes they do the character justice and we all suspected that the 64-year-old (but still stunning) actress might have a comeo in the movie.

Sadly, to seems it’s not to be.

Addressing the issue, her representative, Pete Sanders said to The Washington Post: “If I could tell you that I wouldn’t, but I can’t.”

Truth be told, we’re a little disappointed at this news because, for a lot of us fans, seeing Carter on the big screen would be a very welcome bit of nostalgia.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, DannyHuston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis.

Wonder Woman will arrive on June 23rd, 2017

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
